Kindergarten-Grade 3—Little Hedgehog is back in this adorable picture book. He's excited about the weather as he finally gets to try out his new raincoat, boots, and umbrella. As he goes out for a walk, he encounters other animals and even has a few narrow escapes from the now-heavier rain, wind, and rising waters. The pictures are done in vivid pastels and are the stars of the show. Hedgehog's umbrella and rain gear have an enticing gloss that begs to be touched. While the story line seems to wander a little, the premise is simple and comforting, ending with hot cocoa and cookies at Badger's home. Despite the animals' ordeals, this book has a cozy, snuggly tone, and parents will take pleasure in sharing it while their youngsters nestle in. A great rainy-day read.—Adrienne Wilson, Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, Monroe, CT
